It’s here. Voting day for our primary in the great state of Florida.
I’ve been praying for this day since November 4, 2008.
And I really Can. Not. believe my choices at this point.
But in all the backbiting and arguments, in all the news coverage and debates, there are a couple things for certain I think most of us need to realize:
1- Jesus Ain’t Running.
Not one of these men hopeful to win the primaries is Jesus. Not one is perfect. One may have all the right answers but that doesn’t necessarily mean they have the ability to lead and get congress to follow through with any of their promises. One may be strong and outspoken but that doesn’t mean they can work together well with others. I may be disappointed with whom I am left to choose from at this point, but Jesus isn’t on the ballot, so perfection is out of the question. In all the rantings I’ve read over the last few months it feels like this simple point is often overlooked as one publication or another sought to discredit each contender based on past failures.
2- Jesus may not be running, but He holds the High Office.
No matter who is in the Oval Office, Jesus never leaves the office. If you’ve ever read any of our Founding Father’s letters or journals, you know they prayed for generations after them. Whether our leader is a believer or not we can be sure that our God is very much sovereign over the affairs of this nation and I KNOW there are rock solid believers in the Beltway who work and pray tirelessly over our nation’s leadership. That being said, I hope that whoever winds up in that big beautiful White House knows who his Supreme Commander is.
Whether or not you like the candidates, don’t be a baby and not vote. Too many men and women have died for you to have that opportunity. Too much blood has been spilled from the Revolution and the War for Independence, the Civil War, WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam, and every middle eastern military operation since. We may not all agree on every political issue or even party…but we should all recognize the great cost of such liberty and honor those who gave it to us by going to the ballot box tomorrow and casting our vote.
Love to all of you and may the best man win our primary in Florida…and may God Bless America.
